I felt the same when I was there.

Apparently, this makes Republicans proud to be Americans, 'cause at least they know they're free

It should also make Democrats proud to be American, 'cause at least those unfortunate tourists will understand they were murdered because of socio-economic oppression and lack of quality education and blah blah....'

Makes about as much sense...

You should be more afraid of the increase in fatalities from a traffic accident in the states

Just drive slow in the fast lane like all the other tourists do - then it's all good.

We drove slightly above the speed limit in the slow lane and were still getting passed. It was great. Here 80% of speeding fines are people doing less than 10km/h (6.2mph) over the limit. And you can't turn against red lights (left for us, right for you).

Here in SoCal, on the freeway it's GAME ON. You're either stopped or driving 80-90 mph - that's for the average drivers. The endorphin junkies and over-compensating one percenters routinely break 110.

That's bullshit. If I got a ticket for less than 10 over I'd lose it. You're usually pretty safe to be doing anything under 15 over on the main roads, 20 over on the highway without getting a ticket in Canada

Great. Turn this into a Conservative issue. Not into the Hate crime that it is. A black kid wanted to kill a white guy and he did. Why was that? Where is the Liberal outrage? He had hatred for the white man and killed another person. He should be hung not given life. Where were his parents? How on earth can you blame Republicans on this one? Wow you are real far from reality.

I'm going to try not to read too much into this sentence, but I do find it awfully disturbing.

Maybe someone had to counterbalance that poster that turns everything into a liberal issue?

What's his name? Tim something? All I remember is that he's a detective, or was a detective, or maybe a lumberjack... oh hell, I can't remember now.

I blame the guns.

There's plenty of outrage on this subject, and it's a nations embarrassment. Race is a component of this, but the real issue is, as always, the ease of accessibility to handguns.

Also, there is specific criteria for something to be considered a hate crime. We'll see if this meets that criteria. From what I've read, a gang initiation seems a likely explanation.

Tourists don't fear our black people. They fear Americans with guns.

But rest assured, Australia -- the murder rate is at a 40-year low. It's safer to visit American now than in any of our lifetimes.

It's just unfortunate that the masturbatory gun fantasy results in crimes like this one that could only ever happen in America, not inly but primarily because of our gun laws.

A disgusting, semi-related story of 2 teens beating an 88 year old WWII veteran to death:
